Transformers: Dark of the Moon Reviews

Will Leitch

This movie is actively making the world a worse place to live. I am certain Michael Bay considers it his masterwork. He's right. God help us all.

[Bay], having seemingly learned nothing from the last film, allows just about all of the same mistakes to be made yet again.

An overlong ordeal, devoid of excitement and intrigue.

The inexplicable, unwieldy narrative staggers with its brazen incomprehensibility as it clambers forward.

In his never-ending quest to go beyond the impossible, Bay has actually succeeded but not at all in the way he probably hoped. Miraculously, against all odds, Michael Bay has made a movie about giant robots invading the earth... boring.

Simon Miraudo

Four years, two sequels, a pair of racist robots and a conservative estimate of one billion robot punches later, I have to wonder if my enjoyment of that first instalment in the Transformers franchise was merely the result of low expectations.

Sarasota Herald-Tribune

I'll give Michael Bay credit for crisper, more lucid action scenes. But the plot is still a hot mess of endless exposition, double crosses, people running hither and fro without much reason, and a lot of unnecessary humans.

Each subsequent Transformers film seems to prove one thing - that the first one was a fluke.

Seeing the new Transformers movie was a little like agreeing to go on one more date with someone who has hurt your feelings twice already.

Has the same nonsensical plotting, headache-inducing visuals and lame attempts at comic relief as the other Transformers movies.

Daily Film Fix

A carnival of top-drawer special effects on top of effects punctuated by incoherent attempts to develop a story that provides a feeble excuse for another hurricane of effects.

Bay has delivered another empty spectacle that is overlong and mostly tedious.

Ultra Culture

The formula is basically the same: 2.5 hour runtime, awful script, dislikable protagonist and at least an hour of robot-based carnage.

Seven Days

If you're eager to experience this slow-motion collision of state-of-the-art virtual reality, military melodrama, soft-core porn and cartoon, you probably already have.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

...trades in casual racism, sexism and murder, as well as an obsessive fetishization of war - all under the guise that it's just silly robot-bashing fun.

Fan The Fire

If Transformers 3 was produced purely to be an expose of what you can do with CGI in the modern era, it'd get full marks. It's truly is the ultimate showreel for Industrial Light & Magic. But it's meant to be a film, and sadly it's not very good at that.

Badass Digest

Transformers 3 is the Michele Bachmann of cinema. Despite all of its staggering flaws it will have its supporters, and its success is part of a trend of accepting less and pretending it's more.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a visually ugly film with an incoherent plot, wooden characters and inane dialog. It provided me with one of the more unpleasant experiences I've had at the movies.

In the future, maybe Bay should abandon using a screenwriter altogether and just fill up 90 minutes with disconnected images of robo-carnage.
